Joshua B. Kutnick
After working for an experienced criminal defense attorney, Josh decided to begin his own practice in 2001.
Most notably, in 2012, Josh successfully argued to Judge Stanley Sacks to declare the Illinois Eavesdropping Act unconstitutional. The case was part of a wave of change in an individual’s rights to record the police while exercising their public duties. He continues to be a leading authority of the topic of the Illinois Eavesdropping Act, and he continues to search for more eavesdropping cases to further challenge the Act.
Josh’s greatest ability is to analyze the strengths and weakness of both sides of a case, and to determine the best path that is in the client’s best interest. His personal style and courtroom acumen have been noted by many clients as his strongest traits. Clients remark that he is comforting but realistic in the office, yet in the courtroom he can be equally savvy and tactful. He shows his aggressive side when needed and stays calm when appropriate. His ability to explain the details of law and the criminal justice system is a great help to his clients and their families.
